Ryanair Launches New UK Routes From Knock

Ryanair has announced two new UK routes from Knock to Edinburgh and Manchester from this September, flying twice weekly as part of Ryanair’s Irish Summer 2021 schedule.

Ryanair’s Director of Commercial, Jason McGuinness said: “We are pleased to announce two new routes from Knock to Edinburgh & Manchester, commencing in September 2021 and flying twice weekly as part of our Irish Summer 2021 schedule. Mindful that Covid restrictions change regularly, customers can now book flights for a well-deserved break knowing that if they need to postpone or change their travel dates, they can do so up to two times with a zero-change fee until the end of October 2021.”

Welcoming the news, Joe Gilmore, Managing Director, Ireland West Airport commented: ‘The airport were extremely disappointed to lose these two services last year following the ceasing trading of our longstanding partner Flybe and it has been our priority during the last 12 months to secure a replacement carrier for these services, given the importance and popularity of these markets. We thank Ryanair for their continued unwavering support for the airport in expanding their route network during what continues to be the most challenging period in the airports history, and indeed for aviation globally, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, this announcement reflects both the airport and our airline partners commitment to rebuilding and continuing to expand our route network and we are confident that with the support of our loyal customer base, Local Authority partners, stakeholders and Government, the airport will return to growth in the not too distant future when international travel recovers from the effects of COVID-19.”
